i have a lot to update you on and lots of pictures to share with you…lucky dogs.  :)   last week i turned 6 months old.  mommy got out the ole birthday hat and sang happy birthday to me.  As you can tell by this picture, I really liked it.

then she got obnoxious and put the hat on me…seriously is this how it's going to be the rest of my life?

and here i am singing (howling) back at mommy after she sang to me…

since my howling stage, i have pretty much moved on to yelling.  what can i say, i'm a girl that knows what she wants and i find that yelling gets me what i want.  i think i've got them wrapped around my finger, but don't tell them!

I definitely have daddy wrapped around my finger.  This is how we hang out most nights…

this past weekend my ba-pa and ga-ga came to visit me.  we played and played and payed.  ba-pa got this me lion and i love to play with it because i can grab onto his hair and put it in my mouth.  these days i pretty much put everything in my mouth…my hands, my toys, mommy's hands…all is fair play now that i can grasp things. 

thank you so much for coming to visit me ba-pa and ga-ga!  i love you very much and miss you already.

bald is beautiful…

Picture 157other noteworthy items to share with you…i slobbera lot.  my bottom 2 teeth haven't come in yet but it's only a matter of time.  I now weigh somewhere between 11 1/2 lbs and 12 lbs.  It's harder for mommy to weigh me now because i hate it and move too much.  because my baby rolls are multiplying, i am now in size 2 diapers.  after sleeping through the night for 8 weeks I am consistently waking up in the middle of the night and demanding a bottle.  i still love attention.

time for a walk….

love and fairy dust,

    Happy 6 months and counting! While I trail you by half your life span I’d like to think I’m mature for my age. I’m not usually this forward, but your so cute and amazing. We HAVE to meet. My Mom says its incredible how much you look like your parents. To which I say: “that’s kinda how it works, Ma.” Shes embarrassing but her finger dexterity is incredible, so she’s typing this for me.

    I wish you the best for the next 6 months! Until we meet …

    All love,
    Jack Pearson

    Happy 6 month birthday Adali! OMG you look soooo much like your Daddy in the picture of you two together!!!! Guess that is a good thing, as we all know “Bald is defintely beautiful!”
    We loved the hat, but you have to watch your mommy as she might get carried away with that silly stuff – tell her that elastic strap is NO FUN!!! Can’t wait until the next time we get to see you – Kelly, Clare and I anyway – our boys don’t appreciate cute babies like we do!!!
    Love and kisses to you,
    Patty, Kelly & Clare

    You TOTALLY have your mommy’s eyes in the first picture with the big ole cheesing smile. These are some of the BEST pictures in the last 6 1/2 months – very happy baby! Very photogenic…bet gaga appreciates that :)

    Hi cutie Adali. My son is also named Adali. Taken from the Hebrew word Adlai–and then made into something special. Interesting take on vaccinations…. You know–OUR son had a SEVERE allergy to eggs and eggwhites and could NOT be vaccinated for several vaccines. Also, our pediatrician, Dr.Jay Gordon, Santa Monica CA–could actually ADVISE Your mother on the importance of some vaccines,and the least amount of importance with others. Still–you sure are cute. Just cannot stand by while yet another mother is a bit pedantic about vaccines. YIKES! Look at EVERYTHING> READ EVERYTHING. What’s right for your Adali may not be right for mine.

    Suscribe to Mothering magazine. Collection different articles. Speak to a group of women whose children suffer autism and who were completely healthy before their MMR. I’m glad that your husband is a MD. Chances are you did not seek out alternative ideas or methods. We also have a “backup” pediatrician who would most likely think the way that your husband does. I respect him tremendously. I am just saying that several of our sons vaccines made him horribly, horribly sick. Days of high fever, moaning etc. I believe in vaccinating…only doing a lot of research first. And by the way, while I haven’t had time to reasearch Dr. Gordon’s papers that you spk about–he is a highly respected doctor in Los Angeles. But not just Los Angeles –all over the world. Perhaps you read Parenting? He is constantly quoted and adored. AND celebrity? Hmmm.. I mostly see parents who are a bit earthy crunchy, breast feed until the children are quite into their toddler “hood” and just simple, kind, environmentally friendly folks. This seems to be a losing situation. Namely for me. Read Mothering and remember. A parent knows best. I just like to do a lot of research first. And having a child with severe allergies was an AHA moment for myself and my husband. He has almost all of his shots, just not the ones with egg protein and never the MMR. Sincerely, A.M.Schell
